U.S. Customs and Border Patrol officials made a startling find at a Texas checkpoint Tuesday.
They seized more than 30 pounds of marijuana hidden in framed pictures of Jesus.
A drug sniffing dog named Cesar made the discovery as a 22-year-old woman in a Jeep tried to cross the border into El Paso.
Officials say it's common for smugglers to use religious symbols to try and get drugs across the border.
A total of 214 pounds of pot were found in two other seizures at the same checkpoint on the same day.
